Wonderful Thankyou-Time!
For those of us in the fundraising profession, the time for giving thanks reaches its peak in December. Year-end appeals are in the mail, but our work is just beginning! 

With a little bit of planning, you can create opportunities at holiday time to thank and engage your donors in ways that let your donors know that they are valued and that their gifts are truly making a difference in someone else’s life.  Read more

Lona Farr, Distinguished Honoree
The season of giving thanks begins for the entire fundraising community in the month of November with the celebration of National Philanthropy Day®. This year, FAC recognized Lona Farr as its Distinguished Honoree at the NPD event hosted by the Eastern PA Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Through the years, Lona has been an inspiration and mentor to countless fundraisers across the country.

Marci, in particular, gives thanks for the influence Lona has had on her professional career. Read more at Muhlenberg College celebrates Two Alumnae, One Solid Business.

Congratulations UCHS!
The spirit of thanks giving was at its height on November 16 when volunteers of United Church Homes and Services’ Campaign for Abernethy Laurels gathered to learn they had surpassed their $3.6 million campaign goal. UCHS engaged FAC to undertake a philanthropic planning and feasibility study and to provide recommendations on campaign implementation. FAC also provided support and coaching to UCHS staff for grant research and writing.

Staff and volunteers alike gave their all to make this campaign a success. Nancy Beard sent us this photo with a note saying,” this is what it takes to get the job done!”
